and teachers should all be wearing holsters and ready to fire according to mr. gohmert. >> well, mr. gohmert, that was a stupid comment to be quite honest with you. insensitive at best and really out of touch with reality. you know, in my state, which is gun happy, there was efforts to have guns on campuses. a law passed you can have concealed weapons in a bar. all at the behest of the nra, all marching to that tune. well, that extremism is no longer part of the conversation. mr. gohmert has his opinion, but it is a shallow and lonely opinion. the rest of america does not believe that. >> i think i agree with you, sir. congressman, thank you so much. >> thank you very much. >> stay with us. much more ahead. ♪ stop! stop! stop! come back here! humans -- we are beautifully imperfect creatures living in an imperfect world. that's why liberty mutual insurance has your back with great ideas like our optional better car replacement. if your car is totaled, we give you the money to buy one a model year newer. ♪ call... and ask one of our insurance experts about it today. hello?! we believe our
the speaker's announced policy of january 5, 2011, the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. gohmert, for 30 minutes. mr. gohmert: thank you, mr. speaker. it's uplifting to hear my friend, dan lungren, from california, with -- what an amazing public servant he has been. i've fought battles with hen -- with the man, i know his heart and he is going to be sorely missed. he cares so deeply thabt country. such is the lots of people whose country has leadership decided by elections. sometimes good things happen, sometimes they don't but democracy ep sures that a people are governed no better than they deserve. so whether someone liked president reagan or president george h.w. bush or president bill clinton, or president george w. bush or president barack obama, the truth is, at the time they were elected president, we as a nation, overall, got the president we deserved at that time. now, one of the most impressive speeches i've ever heard was given by senator barack obama at the democratic convention, and i love the way he talked about america coming back as one america. not a red america
. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. gohmert, for five minutes. mr. gohmert: thank you, mr. speaker. today when the house opens for regular session, we will be led by visiting chaplain, reverend jerome r. milton. this extraordinary man is a friend and he is an inspiration to me. to borrow from the testimonial sermon of his, reverend milton, as a very small child, was left with his brother and sister in a run down california motel to die. the san diego county welfare department found them and placed them in a horrific orphannage called the oak crest or fannage where -- orphannage where abuse of all kinds were inflicted upon them. many of the children in such terrible conditions committed suicide. which included his brother and sister. after the horrors of this orphannage, he was placed in 13 different foster homes where he suffered more unfathomable abuse and inhuman treatment. finally as jerome says, god heard the cry of the lam -- lamb, and he was placed in his 14th home of florence johnson brown, she could not read or write, but she was a good woma
on the planes after 9/11. >> ari, he's not alone. >> no, he's not. >> mr. gohmert, congressman said he hoped the school had an m-4, m-5. there are many other people saying the same thing. >> the mother of the killer had plenty of guns that didn't protect her. it's ludicrous. this is up there with the gingrich colony on the moon. there aren't teachers out there clambering for it. that's where if newt gingrich speaks for anyone and i'm not sure he really does, but if he speaks for anyone, they're not in tune with the public mood right now. the question is how do -- there are people still coming back to the tobacco analogy. there are people that still smoke and people who drive really too fast and die on the roads. no one is saying in this point that we're talking about taking away guns out of the entirety of american culture. it's gun safety. and do you make schools safer by having more weapons out there. it's conceivable some other kid could break into the school's gun closet and turn it on the princip principal. >> the other issue which is how does a handgun compare against an ar-15, one tha
great pleasure to yield to my friend from texas, mr. gohmert. mr. gohmert: thank you, mr. woodall. and thank you, mr. speaker. i know it's a time to honor jay pearson but it's really a sad time for me. over my years, i don't know of anybody i've spent more time with on these evenings on the floor. of course for the last two years we're either going until midnight most nights and was usually here with jay pearson. and i know jay was not a boy scout but as someone who is an eagle scout, i know that we're taught that the ultimate in life is to be trustworthy. i don't know of anybody on capitol hill that is more trustworthy than jay pearson. loyal, loyal and yet courteous, kind. jay pearson has been a true friend and to have somebody who knows what goes on, knows the rules, we can disagree about the rules but i can come to him and know i have the institutional memory right there with me. that has been such a huge help. and just knowing when i did need information i could call jay, and i would have whatever i needed. so, jay, i know that you're going to be better off without us, but we
, the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. gohmert, for 30 minutes. mr. gohmert: thank you, madam speaker. it's a pleasure to follow my friend from pennsylvania, mr. altmire, before that, my friend from georgia, mr. woodall. the last vote we took today was to eliminate the word lunatic from our federal law, and i don't have a problem with lunatic being used in the federal law. and apparently i was the only one here on the floor that didn't have a problem with using the floor lunatic. in fact, it occurred to me that not only should we not use the term lunatic -- and i've eliminated the word lunatic at a time when we are facing national bankruptcy if we don't get serious about our issues, we should also use the term to identify those who want to continue doing business as usual around this town. it's time we got serious. one of the things that would help the administration get serious, because it is a big deal and not because c.b.o. has no clue what it's going to cost as illustrated by $1.1 trillion, $1.6 trillion, and maybe $1.8 trillion. they don't have a clue. they are not allowe
of january 5, 2011, the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. gohmert, for 30 minutes. mr. gohmert: first, i think it's important to continue to let the people of connecticut who have suffered so and lost loved ones, they will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. that is such a difficult time and they need our support. it is a difficult time. i think so often when we look for wisdom, different places, solomon should have known, fear the lord is the beginning of wisdom. in the early days of our country , people sought wisdom through prayer. the constitutional convention when they could not reach an agreement after nearly five weeks, ben franklin stood up and the contentiousness stopped and someone wrote that george washington looked like he had a relieved look on his face. 80-year-old ben franklin, overweight, gout, arthritis, had problems getting up and down sometimes, but his mind was still brilliant and that's when he pointed out that he had not once thought of applying to the father of lights to illuminate. we have his speech because he recorded it and wrote it in his own
together the final bill, mr. gohmert. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas. mr. gohmert: thank you, mr. speaker. on september 18, 2001, seven days after the worst attack on american history, the authorized use of military force was passed. and i've come to understand how legislation can be hurredly thrown together and it was. we were in a crisis. and during those days i was a judge, when i got to congress, and the ndaa came up to extend, re-authorize the u.m.f. this issue of whether american citizens were protected came up. some mistakenly thought the ndaa did some grand -- granting of power to the president that he shouldn't have. but actually it was in the original aumf. it said the president could basically go after any nation, organization or person that he thought was a threat or may have participated. that needed to be reined in. i've worked with some of my colleagues, with professors, with legal experts, even though one professor went to harvard, they've been immensely helpful. and we've crafted language. and i even appreciate senator levine working with us and the chair
